Fun Valentine’s Strawberry Heart

Valentine’s Strawberry Heart

Nothing says love and Valentine’s like a heart … and especially a red one!!

What better than some luscious strawberries to create a love fun food design. We had the plate for dessert (a little early granted) and the boys were delighted.

Healthy Valentines dessert


– Fresh strawberries


1. I used a cookie cutter mold in the shape of a heart and filled it liberally with strawberries.

2. Then removed it slowly and the strawberries stayed in place … phew!

3. To make it clear what it was for I cut the date from another couple of berries.

– Capsicums (Bell peppers) in various colours

– I used a little celery for detail


1. I cut a big red heart from a red capsicum. I cut it freehand as the shape actually lends itself to a heart ..

2. Then I cut an “I” and a “U” in the spirit of love …
